    Hey,
    Acer has just announced a Coffee Lake convertible laptop, the Spin 5. Something that is striking to me is that it is GTX 1050, same for Nitro 5 Spin. Spin 5 claims 13 hours, while Nitro 5 Spin claims 10 hours.
    This makes me think that Acer is targeting different consumers, since they both have same dGPU, the differences I think they have is the design (since N5S is red-themed), battery life and maybe price.
    The thing that I appreciate is that Spin 5 isn't red-themed to obviously tell others that it is "gaming".
    What are your opinions for them?

    I really like both models and looking forward to both, maybe the difference if it's not battery size could just be the configurable TDP of the i7 8550u.Pretty sure it can be 15W or up to 25W but it's just speculation on my part.

    They look exactly the same just with different trim, hopefully the hardware is the same also.

    they look like rebranded clones, I'll prefer the Spin 5 cuz it isn't red

    Same. I prefer the spin 5 but the nitro model is growing on me.
    I was looking at the Yoga 720 with i7 but after reading it runs hot and loud and the turbo is turned off the CPU changed my mind and started looking at these.

    The silvery Spin 5 looks and specs are good. Especially with the quad core U-processor. I hope the insides can be accessed well (though I'm afraid it may contain soldered Ram).
